This Artist Paints With Wine

Well it’s Bank Holiday Sunday and I’m sure you’ve had a glass of wine by now. Well, maybe several but that’s cool with us. However, if you get bored of your wine, why not have a crack at painting with it. This guy did and the results are awesome!

This is Alfonso Aguirre in his studio, living his best life.

Here’s his bullfighter:

Which he describes as “masculine frivolity”… titillating.

And this acid trip of beauty:

It all started as an accident. Alfonso was having his own private “paint n’ sip” class at home when his brush ended up in his wine instead of his water glass. And voila! Just like Jesus, he turned water(color) into wine. I mean, kinda sorta.

Look at his fancy wine pots! They look like they belong next to a bunch of succulents in a hipster’s home.

Alfonso makes it clear that making wine art is not like making jungle juice for a frat party. It takes hours to mix the color juuuuust right.

And after he’s done with one painting, he throws out the rest of the paint and starts fresh! UM, Alfonso, I’d be happy to take the leftovers off your hands for ya.

And the wine is definitely NOT two-buck chuck from Trader Joe’s (shoutout to my wine of choice, doe).

Lastly, unlike a drunken night out, mistakes can NOT be made.

Art takes many forms. Fine art takes even more forms! This fella, somehow, paints with wine instead of drinking it! Think what you could do if you were encouraged to be mega arty.
